"Robert Een's colorful, intuitive compsitions are a mesmerizing intertwining of voice and cello." Kristin Faurest, Louisville Courier-Journal. This album features 12 new compositions for voice and cello by Robert Een - singing and playing simultaneously - this is music of beauty, heart and humor. Inspired by everything from real and imagined landscapes to devotional music and Italian aria, Robert Een has written and recorded songs with such titles as "Cars on Mars", "Il Mio Pomodoro", and "Sea of Fire". Dating from a trip to Tibet and northwest China in 1985, Een has been a noted practitioner of overtone singing, and this recording includes two stellar examples, "The Awakener" and "Driving Up Country".

"From time to time one has a chance to discover a new voice with something truly unique to express. Robert Een is such a voice. His singing styles range from the exotic "Tuvan" style of throat singing to a supple flowing technique that reflects his mastery of the cello. This is a quietly bold album full of enchanting surprises. It has a sincere spirituality presented with a modern and eclectic mastery. A triple treat for the ear, the mind, and the heart."
